    I also have the M6 not listed in my profile but it is a great gold machine. I've found several gold rinds with it. Several I've found ring up a solid 20. One was a size 6 wide women's wedding band. No I'd in the find. My F75 rang up to rings from 18 to 23. These are foil numbers but they were solid with no grunt on either side of the target.

    What? Most floors have all kinds of nails and copper wiring...what prompted her to detect the floor and how long had it been since the rug was cleaned?!

    I read that post meaning his mother found the coin while removing the carpet, and still has it, so he has tested it with his detector.

    You got that right. She bought a house built in 1927. It sat vacant for 30 years until her purchase in 2008. Rolling up the rug the coin was just sitting there. Shes kept it ever since. She had it looked at by a local coin shop. Not sure what it was graded at but estimated value was $900 at the time. I had to know what it rang up as cus how often can you have a test like that? And yes we searched everywhere in the house and that was the only one

    I have a Garret AT gold and I'm not sure if it compares numbers wise to your 300 but most gold rings I have found were 46 and up to mid 50's although I air tested an 18K mans nugget ring at 64.I hope this helps.

    Check the corners of the foundation. There was a period of time where they placed a gold coin in the foundation for good luck during construction. Kind of like breaking a bottle over the bow of a ship.

    Even that would be maybe for the more well to do. In the 1880s a dollar was a days wages for a big portion of the population.

    I don't know. My Dad found a half eagle in the corner of the foundation of a large two story Victorian home. These large Victorian homes were owned by doctors, lawyers, business owners, and people that had struck it rich one way or another.

    Someone told me that this was some sort of tradition. Could have just been a hiding place I guess.

    Coins have long been connected to superstitions related to good fortune.
    I think this goes back thousands of years and is true across all of the continents.

    Might be a hint of truth in this old wives tale..

    From an article on good luck charms used in Ireland...

    I'll check to see if the date on the coin matches the date the house was constructed..
